Get a new passport. 

Is that a joke?

Since it's written just on your passport page and not on a Visa, I wonder what would happen if you were to accidentally scribble it out with black pen or somehow accidentally have a big tear in that page so that part is missing. Would anything happen? You could say your kid or nephew was playing with your passport lol

Don’t missing pages invalidate a passport?

Why do people say to avoid DM and BKK airports and to avoid the grumpy female IO. These IOs have to deal with the schemers daily and have no qualms about refusing entry. They get jaded after awhile. I would too. The refusal might say not enough funds but they are probably saying you don't belong here long term. 

Long term stay must show a considerable bank balance or continued source of outside funds, whereas a tourist does not. Well, sometimes B10-20000. There are other requirements that long-term-stay visa holders must show regularly. Why would some on an in and out tourist visa be different? 

Those on back to back tourist visas over a year or more are at risk. They aren't interested in tourism at all.

Might be simpler if the MofFA got it's act together (with the MofI) and stopped issuing Visas that aren't going to work.

Khun Ed, Do you have anything else in your passport that might be of concern, like denial of entry or overstays etc. These could be issues if you apply for an elite visa. There are reports of Elite visas being turned down due to overstays.
